About the programme

During the Master Studies program period of four semesters, you will experience the opportunity to study cultural and economic contexts on an equal footing at the renown Ruhr University. The content of the studies focuses on an international and above all European context. Our guiding idea is to discuss the convergence and divergence of the European social, cultural and economic area within a comparative perspective. Together with the students this should be developed, reflected and analysed. Thereby, Europe and the construction of the “European” build the collective, multi-disciplinary focus on the studies.
